Minister For Health To Attend Parliamentary Roundtable

31st May 18

Summary —

The Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt MP,  will again meet with the ADIA Membership when the annual Dental Industry Parliamentary Roundtable event convenes in Canberra in October 2018.

Key Issues For The Dental Industry —

As the peak business organisation representing manufacturers and suppliers of innovative dental products the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) works with the nation's political leadership in order to reduce the red-tape face by member businesses.  A key component of this advocacy strategy is the annual Dental Industry Parliamentary Roundtable initiative which will be held in Parliament House on 16 October 2017.

Once again the Hon. Greg Hunt MP, Minister for Health, will be attending to meet with members.

The Dental Industry Parliamentary Roundtable initiative, unique in the Australia's dental community, provides an opportunity for a group of ADIA members, representing a wide cross-section of the industry, to engage in a series of one-on-one discussions with key decision makers in Canberra.  Those attending this year's Dental Industry Parliamentary Roundtable meeting include:


2018 Dental Industry Meets Parliament Attendees 

■  Hon Greg Hunt MP ‒ Minister for Health
■  Hon Craig Laundy MP ‒ Minister for Small Business & Deregulation
■  Mr Tony Zappia MP ‒ Shadow Assistant Minister for Medicare
■  Adj. Prof. John Skerritt ‒ Deputy Secretary, Health Department (TGA Head)
■  Ms Kate Carnell ‒ Small Business & Family Enterprise Ombudsman
■  Mr James Pearson ‒ Chief Executive, Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry

On the eventing prior to the meeting ADIA will convene a cocktail reception which affords the entire ADIA membership and key stakeholders from across the dental community to meet informally with parliamentarians from all political parties.

The Dental Industry Parliamentary Roundtable initiative is the centrepiece of ADIA's political engagement strategy directed at increasing the profile of Australia's dental industry as innovators.  It also supports advocacy to achieve a regulatory framework for dental products that is based on a risk management approach designed to ensure public health and safety, while at the same time freeing industry from any unnecessary regulatory burden.
